Our Leaders

Friendly HF leaderOur Guided Walking holidays are led by our panel of over 800 experienced volunteer walk leaders. These highly skilled and friendly leaders are key to the success of our holidays around the world. 

As our leaders are so valued by HF, we provide free training, accommodation, food and travel expenses. We have opportunities to lead year-round, in the UK and further afield, including Christmas, and at all levels from easy walking in the Cotswolds to harder walking in the Scottish Highlands. 

Interested in becoming a leader?

To join our team of leaders you must pass a residential assessment with us, held throughout the year in our country houses.

Volunteering logoVolunteering plays a key role at HF Holidays. Each year our leaders volunteer around 250,000 hours of their time to guide our groups around the world.

All our team members who work in our Country Houses and our offices can spend a day of their work time each year volunteering to support a cause they feel passionate about.

We'll share some of their stories on this section of the website later this year.
